I’m now back home, but I’ve still got a Uganda blog post or two to go. Today’s is about food. OK, so this is essentially just some pictures.

Below: First of all: hand-washing. Before every meal that we had in the different villages we would be given a piece of soap and have water poured over our hands. This is very important in places where disease claims so many lives. But not a bad habit in any case.

Washing hands

Below: This was one of the lunches we had when we visited Ogongora. Rice, goat, chicken, some kind of greens, millet bread (looks a bit like playdough) and something else that I can’t quite remember.

Plate of food

Below: This is another lunch. The meats are once again chicken and goat, this time with chapatis. The people would normally only have meat on very special occasions, so it was a privilege to have it. We paid for these meals, so we were not depriving the people of this food.

Lunch at Ogongora

Below: This is the meal being cooked. Bex had a look inside the kitchen and took some better pictures.

Cooking our food

Finally, a tub of honey that had been collected from local hives. This came all the way back to Kampala with us in the van, along with a live chicken.

  1. Looks like papaya or some kind of fruit. We ate a lot of ugali (made from maize), rice, spinach, and fresh fruit when we were in Tanzania.
